02/12/2021 - Baseball Factory Opening Day Classic (HS - West) This is our third time seeing 2022 grad Hokuf, but the first time in a competitive environment. He's turning into a big-arm player hitting 87mph on flat and sitting comfortably 83-85mph off the bump with his fastball. On the mound, he shows excellent poise and battles not giving an inch against solid hitting. He has swing-and-miss off-speed stuff. Although he's shaved down his 60 yard dash 1/3rd of a second in the last few months, he needs to continue to make getting faster a focus if he wants to stay in the middle-infield. His hands and feet work well together and he showed off that big arm many times. At the plate, he always seems to have a plan. Strike zone awareness is a plus. Overall, Hokuf is a gritty ball-player with a huge upside.
